About the owner: We look forward to speaking with you about the possibility of staying at the 'Chez Valerie'. We welcome you to message us with a phone # if you have any questions about the home or booking a trip to Santa Fe! We will respond promptly and answer any questions honestly to be sure you are choosing the best option for your vacation. We are fellow travelers and with a background in Inn keeping, Hospitality, Fine Art and Real Estate - we attempt to anticipate every detail of your stay. We both enjoy the location of the home because of the immediate access to the SF National Forest right out our front door and ease of access to all things Santa Fe. We love to hike, bike, swim and Santa Fe allows us to enjoy our interests. Randy is a professional artist who travels and teaches throughout the country and internationally. You can see some of his work in the home. Valerie has been working in hospitality for the past several years in Santa Fe and loves hosting guests. She is a retired CA and NM Real Estate Broker. We have been married 32 years. We enjoy being together, traveling and spending time with family & friends. We know you have many choices in Santa Fe for lodging, but we really believe that our home offers something special. It is a sanctuary to all who get to experience it and we feel fortunate to have found it and more fortunate to have the opportunity to share it with others. Welcome!
Why the Owner Chose Santa Fe, NM, USA:
We purchased our home after living in Santa Fe for 7 years and falling in love with it. We owned and operated a fine art gallery for that entire time and enjoyed being in town for business, but when it came time to purchase a home...Tesuque offered us the privacy and convenience we wanted. The absolutely beautiful country drive to and from the home on Bishops Lodge Road. We love the village feel, the Tesuque Village Market, the private drive and a not too long, old fashioned dirt road! Living at the end of the road with complete serenity and panoramic views creates a peaceful environment deserving of what is now our semi - retirement. Tesuque is an historic place that has special meaning to generations of Native Americans, Hispanic and Anglo populations who all work together to preserve her rural setting.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the Northern New Mexico architecture and the large portal that overlooks the pinon and juniper forest right out our door. Everywhere you look are quaint spots to sit and enjoy the outdoor spaces. Flagstone patios, settees, lounge chairs, the hammock and daybed all tell you that our priority is RELAXATION, comfort and fresh air! When you walk in the sweeping hand hewn viga ceilings will astound you. The well appointed kitchen and comfortable furnishing will draw you in. The gorgeous light enhances sunrises and sunsets and you will want your camera ready! We love to share our home and hospitality with respectful, clean and courteous people who will be grateful to be here and enjoy Santa Fe at her finest. We find that a certain kind of soul is intrigued by 'the city different' and we look forward to welcoming visitors and sharing our town with them. If you are like may never leave!
